Here are some of our favorite places for a meal or just hanging out...

Logo Blue Mountain PizzaJust south of the park in downtown Weaverville is Blue Mountain Pizza. Great for pizza, sandwiches and pasta. They offer local brews in addition to their own. VERY popular dinner spot; expect a wait at the dinner hour. Closed Mondays.


Logo Well Bred Bakery & CafeAlso in downtown Weaverville is Well-Bred Bakery and Cafe. Varied selection of deli salads, a great pretzel bun sandwich, and pastries and sweets that are amazing.


Logo Asheville Pizza & Brewing CoAsheville Pizza and Brewing has great pizza (some crazy topping combinations), great sandwiches and a big beer selection which includes local brews and their own. The North Asheville - Merrimon location has a theater and game room. The downtown location has a cool in-town vibe, lots of outdoor seating, and a full bar (if you don't want beer). Open 7 days a week.

Our favorite sushi so far is Zen Sushi, also in North Asheville on Merrimon. Their Merrimon Square neighbors include Urban Burrito (great prices, great burritos), Favilla's Pizza (great for slices), and more!

Logo Luella's Bar-B-Que

For BBQ, Luella's! Hands down, no question!! Jenn's fav is the smoked turkey. The pork is excellent; homemade sauces, some with "heat," are so yummy. They have great sides as well. Rotating local beer selections and a full bar.


Logo Cecilia's KitchenWe've just discovered Cecilia's Kitchen for tamales and empanadas.
Wow! And yum!
North Asheville.


Logo New Belgium BrewingNew Belgium Brewing is a favorite for having a beer. They are located right on the river in West Asheville so hanging out on the deck is a really nice way to spend some time. Their Liquid Center is a tasting room; they don't serve food so they close at 8 pm. Rotating food trucks are around and you're welcome to take food into the LC or out on the deck. Great open area. Lots of doggies frequent New Belgium.

Logo Wedge Brewing CompanyAcross the river from New Belgium is a favorite local spot called the Wedge offering up their own brews.


Logo Urban Orchard Cider CoUrban Orchard Cider Co is a cidery in West Asheville. They have a fun selection of ciders from your basic Sweet English to the "warmer" habanero and vanilla infused concoction called Sidra Del Diablo. The seasonals are really good as well. Ask the server for suggestions on mixing ciders. Their food is excellent! Try the salmon crostini, a cheese plate, or the reuben. Urban Orchard is another of our favorites, particulary Jenn!


Logo Zia TaqueriaZia Taqueria is the only mexican place that we've found to be reasonable in the area. Great flavors, margarita specials, upscale-ish, good service, West Asheville.


Logo King Daddy's

King Daddy's Chicken and Waffles has good food (great fried chicken) and good service, rotating local beers and full bar. Many GF options. This favorite of Guy's is located on Haywood in West Asheville.


Logo Farm BurgerFarm Burger! No description necessary, but here's how they describe it... "Rustic-chic counter spot for upscale burgers made with grass-fed beef, plus shakes, beer & wine." A favorite of Zach's located downtown.

Farm Burger is from the ATL, but we'd never heard of it before discovering it in Asheville. Located in the Leader building.


Asheville Noodle Shop is located downtown and has some of the best soup and noodle dishes EVER! Tiny restaurant, urban location, feels like NYC. Jenn loves this place. Look for the red lanterns and awning just across from the Vance Monument Pack Square.


Skybar View thumbBest touristy spot for roof top views, sunsets and a cocktail is Skybar in downtown Asheville.

Opens at 4 pm Monday to Friday and 3 pm on Saturday and Sunday (according to their site). 


east village grille

If you're staying on the east side of town, you'll find East Village Grill has a lot to offer. Traditional suburban bar/pub atmosphere, but with really good food (not just the deep fry stuff). They have great burgers cooked how you like and a really good steak salad on their big menu. A favorite of JoNathan's!
